North WEST: There were not one but two double centuries in the Long's SuperValu Championship on Saturday with Steven Moore's 205 not out for Drummond being upstaged by Peat Salmon, who scored 230 for Newbuildings in their massive 414 for seven.

Bonds Glen were on the receiving end of Salmon's 92-ball onslaught which included 26 sixes and 13 fours, while Drummond captain Moore hit 176 of his runs in boundaries, 16 sixes and 20 fours in his side's 230 runs victory over Creevedonnell, who collapsed from 99 for four to 128 all out.

THE (NCU Under-15) Graham Cup final between Civil Service North and Ballymena is due to take place at Seapark, Holywood on Friday at 4.00pm.

CSN, last year's beaten finalists, had an impressive seven wickets semi-final win over Waringstown while Ballymena, who last won the cup in 2004 with current 1st XI players Michael and Fergus Taylor and Paul Harshaw in the side, defeated Lurgan in their penultimate game by nine runs.

There is a poor weather forecast for Friday and if the game does not go ahead, it is expected to be put back to August.
